Jomic 0.9.3 released

This releases adds fitting images to width or hight (removing the need to scroll in four directions), rotation, an improved recognition of image files, and the possibility to extend the supported image formats with plugins.

Jomic 0.9.3-rc1 (unstable) released

This release candidate improves viewing for users with smaller screen by offering to fit the image to the height or width of the visual area. Furthermore, it is now possible to rotate the comic.

Although the new features seem to work fine and the documentation is up to date, I decided to give it about a week of quality assurance and code cleanup before making an official release. Furthermore I recently noticed that 0.9.2 broke drag & drop in the Mac OS X Finder, and it seems prudent to fix this soon.
